IT Professionals Day

Annually on the third Tuesday in September, IT Professionals Day (#ITProDay) honors the unsung heroes of the world we all rely on to keep us connected.

This annual holiday started back in 2015 to honor the men and women that maintain the technology organizations depend on to conduct their day-to-day activities. When everything is going smoothly, it's easy to forget your IT staff. But the moment there is a hiccup in internet access or your laptop won't work, they're the most sought after people in the building.

In observering IT Professionals Day, don't lose focus on the most important thing -- to simply say thank you to your IT staff for making your life easier. Although they may not complain if you also give them some tasty treats!
